Here is what I do, until Frank fixes the problem in the Hmisc package

a) list sas.get and copy to editor
b) make the change to line 127 as described
c) preface the function with "sas.get <- "
d) save that as "sas_get_fixed.R"
e) reload R and load Hmisc
f) source("sas_get_fixed.R")

The final step will mask the original, broken sas.get function with the
fixed version.
